Sept 11


About the clip

Tom Marquette made this clip. I chose it as a sample because I like it a lot.

Tom prepared the clip in the days immediately following the attack on 9-11-01. Tom was moved by the shock and desperation of people posting photographs of loved ones who were missing. And by the flags that appeared everywhere.

The images in the clip are taken from the digital photographs that people started posting on the web that day. The number of photographs on the web quickly grew into the thousands.

Technical Stuff

The clip is poorly suited to web video because it uses many slow dissolves. Dissolves display poorly on web video because of the low frame rate (8-15). That's part of the reason I chose it. It is a good test of web video technology.

Clip was assembled in Premiere, converted to Microsoft AVI and encoded using Real Player Pro.
